Dallas Voice: “Leppert Is a Fag Lover”

Coming a bit late to this, but over at the Voice they’re taking Tom Leppert to task for a recent tweet in which he (or one of his staff) wrote, “Another mistake from Obama on DOMA. We need leaders in Washington to stand for the principle of marriage between one man and one woman.” Says John Wright of the Voice:

Clearly, Leppert is anxious to distance himself from his record in Dallas, where he hired an openly gay chief of staff, Chris Heinbaugh, and appeared in two gay Pride parades. Being a big old fag-lover could seriously hurt Leppert in a statewide Republican primary, so he’ll have to work hard to prove how much of a bigot he is.
